Maxta Supports Newly Announced VMware vSphere 6

Maxta, a leading provider of hyper-converged solutions, today announced support for VMware vSphere 6 for its MaxDeploy Reference Architectures and Maxta Storage Platform software (MxSP) as part of the company's on-going commitment to providing organizations immediate access to the most cutting-edge virtual data center innovations. MaxDeploy and MxSP general availability for VMware vSphere 6 will coincide with VMware vSphere 6 general availability.

Maxta enables hyper-convergence on any x86 server, the ability to run on any compute abstraction layer, and the flexibility to support any combination of storage devices (including hybrid and all flash configurations) eliminating the need for complex and expensive NAS and SAN devices. Maxta's vendor-agnostic approach to converged computing and storage optimized for the virtual data center empowers organizations to choose the server and hypervisor of their choice, with the confidence that support for the latest technology innovations are consistently delivered by Maxta. Other examples of Maxta innovation include being the first hyper-converged vendor to support Intel Xeon E5 2600 v3 processors running on pre-validated MaxDeploy solutions on day 1 of the processor's general availability, support of hyper-convergence for KVM and OpenStack with enterprise-class data services, first hyper-converged solution to support Stretch Metro Cluster for high availability over metro distances running on Cisco UCS servers, and being the first to announce hyper-convergence solutions for Containers. 

In addition to broad support for server platforms and hypervisors, Maxta solutions continue to lead the industry in key capabilities such as end-to-end data integrity, support for 1000s of snapshots and clones per VM with no performance degradation, and capacity optimization.

MaxDeploy Reference Architectures deliver a new and flexible way of deploying hyper-converged infrastructures by pre-defining and pre-validating solutions that combine Maxta hyper-convergence software along with leading server platforms and virtual data center solutions. MaxDeploy removes the challenges of interoperability and performance guesswork. Purchasing MaxDeploy configurations is as simple as purchasing a pre-built appliance, noting that companies retain the flexibility to scale compute and storage independently to meet their organization's needs. MaxDeploy configurations are pre-installed and simple to deploy, delivering Zero to VMs in 15 minutes.

Maxta Storage Platform (MxSP) is a hypervisor-agnostic, highly resilient, scalable storage software platform for the virtual data center. It fully integrates with server virtualization at all levels from user interface to data management, while supporting all possible deployments of virtual data centers, including private, public and hybrid clouds. MxSP turns standard servers into a converged compute and storage solution, leveraging server-side flash, disk drives and/or JBOD to optimize performance and capacity. MxSP distributed architecture enables shared storage with enterprise-class data services such as snapshots, clones, thin provisioning, compression, deduplication, and replication as well as full scale-out without performance degradation. This results in dramatically simplifying IT and significant cost savings. MxSP matches very well the requirements of service providers and enterprises that prefer to purchase and potentially customize server farms themselves and require hyper-convergence to eliminate the complexity and cost of storage arrays.

"Our commitment to providing customers the choice of hardware and software they most prefer is reflected in our continued support of the latest technological advancements in the industry, such as VMware vSphere 6," said Yoram Novick, Founder, President and CEO, Maxta. "Our support of previous, current and future hypervisor releases regardless of vendor is core to our promise of maximizing choice, maximizing savings and maximizing simplicity for organizations looking to achieve hyper-scale, enterprise-level data services and capacity optimization." - Yoram Novick, Founder, President and CEO, Maxta
